Kari Asikainen (1939) is an award-winning Finnish interior architect. His career began with a collaboration with P.O. Korhonen Oy in 1969, when production began on his first chair, the “Kari 1”. The product group became very popular, and so far over a million pieces of furniture have been manufactured in the Kari product group.

 “A piece of furniture is not an objet d’art, but an object to be used. However, it should still have a beautiful form.”
